'Basketball Wives' Star

Dwight Howard's Putting Our Kid in Danger!

8/3/2013 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Basketball Wives" star Royce Reed claims Dwight Howard took off with their son and won't tell her where he is ... a perilous problem because the tyke doesn't have his meds.

Royce went to court asking for an emergency hearing  ... claiming their 6-year-old son Braylon went to California to visit Dwight, and that's the last she heard from her baby daddy or the boy.  Dwight's parents eventually called her to say the kid was in Colorado.

Royce says her son needs his meds for an undisclosed medical condition and the Rx bottle is now empty -- Dwight never bothered to get it refilled.

She says without the meds, their son's health is in danger.

Royce doesn't have a problem with Dwight taking care of the boy for a while, but she wants the judge to order him to refill the prescription and give Braylon his meds.  She also wants to know exactly where her boy is and how she can get in touch.

A hearing date has not been set.

No matter the energy between the 'adults' the child and his needs have got to come first. Not medicating as directed by a doctor? Isn't that some form of child abuse? There must be more to this story...

This jerk has like 4 other children with 4 different woman but stay giving Royce problems. She has every right tto speak or know where her son is at all times. He really is jerk and I feel bad for Royce because he's always bullying her and bc he has big smile and bank account people look at her sideways.

Very childish and immature....Never put your child's life in harms way because of your own ego or issues your having with the other parent...

Oh, I suspect they have Benadryl and/or doctors in Colorado. Ever notice how much phony drama is associated with anyone who is part of a show with. "Wives" in the title?

OMG! That's such a lie! It's not even in his character to do something like that, he's always happy and very well balanced. I've seen a video and pictures of Royce all over the internet showing her black a@@ and so that's responsible?!?!.. Her son is exposed to that kind of behavior..No, she must be looking for more child support...It's so typical...
